Q. What's all this about?

This is a project dedicated to the delightfully adorable concept of dogs in costume, smushed together with solid dose of nerdy knowledge. I got the idea when my partner & I finally adopted a dog and I realized that two of my greatest loves, dogs & history, were a match made in art heaven. I knew there were tons of people and other artists who love dogs, so I figured, why not make a book and donate any profits to the American Civil Liberties Union?

Q. Who are you?

Hi! My name is Lauren and I'm an illustrator living in Ohio.

Q. What's inside the zine itself?

The book will be a collection of full page, full color illustrations, paired with a brief description of the historical figure/dog or time period from which the illustration is derived.

Q. How much will the zine cost?

Print copies will be $20. Watermarked digital copies will be $5. A bundle containing both versions will be $23. Domestic shipping will be $3 and international shipping will be $5. Preorders will open in April 2017.

As a note, if your shipping address changes after you've put in your order, just email me at lauren@laurenchaikin.com with your new address and order number. Your order will be shipped as soon as I receive your updated address.

Q. And then what?

Keep an eye on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! I'll be posting updates as the project progresses using that hashtag #HistoricalPoochesZine.

Q. Can I ask another question that I don't see here?
